Shūsaku Endō

Endō in 1954 was a Japanese author who wrote from the rare perspective of a Japanese Roman Catholic. Together with Junnosuke Yoshiyuki, Shōtarō Yasuoka, Junzo Shono, Hiroyuki Agawa, Ayako Sono (also Catholic), and Shumon Miura, Endō is categorized as part of the "Third Generation" (that is, the third major group of Japanese writers who appeared after World War II).

The 2016 film ''Silence'', directed by Martin Scorsese, is an adaptation of Endō's 1966 historical novel of the same name. Provided by Wikipedia
